Pepsiman's Shopping List

Even if it's economically detrimental to me in the end, I like hoarding my video games. Save for a few instances where I sold games that I either had extra copies of or just disliked extremely, I've more or less held on to every game I've ever gotten my hands on. As a result of that, I've come to enjoy the act of going out and deliberately collecting video games. Although I'm not one of those people who's crazy enough to collect an entire console's library or anything like that, there are still a number of games and systems that, for various reasons, I want to go out of my way and nab at some point in the future.

Of course, that's money permitting and that's mostly what this list serves: as a reminder of the more expensive video games, consoles, and what have you that I want to add to my personal collection. When I'll actually come across the money and luck necessary to track some of these items down, I don't know, but there's a certain sense of fulfillment that comes from finally getting a hard-to-find game in my hands, so the search goes on for as long as it needs. Sometimes it turns out the search is more fun than playing the actual games themselves and that's okay.

I own the Net Yoraze and the Famicom Disk System. What I want is the Sattelivew and N64 Glove Controller (Yes, they had one).

Japanese Neo Geo's along with the games themselves are signifcantly cheaper than there American counterparts.

@Unknown_Pleasures: That makes sense. I've seen then out and about while shopping around in Japan before, but didn't really think to make any comparisons at the time. I'll definitely look into it when I'm back in August. Are even the AES units there cheaper, to your knowledge? I imagine I'll just end up going for MVS stuff anyway for the sake of cheapness, but I still want to know.

@Pepsiman:  Yeah the Japanese AES carts are cheaper because there were more produced in Japan than in America....so knowing Japanese really comes to your advantage because even with paying overseas shipping its still a lot cheaper.....and going for MVS in the long run is probably a better investment.....while getting an arcade machine is a pretty big investment, the MVS carts are cheaper than the AES carts and playing on an arcade machine is a better experience than playing on a console.
